Method

Remove the Regal salmon from the fridge and allow to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. Remove from packet and sprinkle over the chipotle seasoning covering both sides of each piece.

Preheat a barbecue grill plate or large heavy-based grill pan. Grill corn until charred and heated through. Use a knife to cut down the sides of the corn cob to remove the kernels. Scrape into a salad bowl. Mix in the black beans, cherry tomatoes, onion slices, chilli slices and salad leaves. Toss well to combine.

Mix together the oil, lime juice, extra chipotle seasoning and honey in a small bowl or glass jar with a lid. Shake well. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss to combine.

Mash the avocadoes with a little lemon juice, and coriander leaves. Season to taste.

On the hot grill plate, cook the seasoned salmon for 2 minutes on each side. Turn onto the skin side for 30 seconds to make the skin crispy. Leave the salmon to rest for 2 minutes before serving.

Serve the salmon together with the Tex-mex salad and guacamole and plenty of lime wedges and extra coriander leaves.
